    The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed in principle to trade Yi Jianlian to the New Jersey Nets for Richard Jefferson, two league sources told SI.com.

    The Bucks also are sending Bobby Simmons to the Nets. He has $20.5 million left on a contract that expires in the summer of 2010, when LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh could become free agents.

    This trade could be seen as a sign that the Nets truly are interested in getting involved in the LeBron sweepstakes, based in no small part on his close friendship with Nets minority owner Jay-Z. As a result of this trade, the Nets are no longer committed to paying Jefferson $15 million in 2010-11.

    Yi's camp was said to be ecstatic about going to the rebuilding Nets and playing in a major market, which was one of the original concerns when he was drafted by the Bucks last year. Yi threatened to not sign with Milwaukee in hopes of forcing a trade to another team.

    The Bucks, meanwhile, are providing new coach Scott Skiles with a veteran player who can help him win now. The Bucks also retain their No. 8 pick in the draft to further revamp their team. The Nets hold the No. 10 pick in the draft.

          Why is everyone so sure that Lebron will go to the Knicks or Nets in 2010. He loves the Bronx and Jayz but won't the Cavs do everything humanly possible to keep Labron in his hometown?

            I think this move was more for the Bucks to tell u the truth. Watch out for a trade to move Redd to the Cavs so Lebronski will have another scoring threat. They need to win a championship within next 2 years to keep him happy

                  I agree but who would they give up? They have nobody. Maybe Gibson but Redd is more valuable than him.

                    Do that Cavs really want someone who has a max-contract but doesn't really deserve that much?
                    And now for something completely different

                      Looks like Jefferson is now happy or acting happy to be in Milwaukee after being very suprised and disappointed when he first found out of the trade.
